True, but you cannot ignore the fact that players around the league see the upward trajectory as a compelling reason to join the team. They're coming here with championship aspirations because they believe we can reach that goal.

John Johnson III signed with us when he was supposedly offered more.
Karim Hunt signed a new contract when he probably could have gotten more if he had hit the FA market

Not denying that. Everyone will have their own takes. The Dorsey tenure set us back a year but I think we are poised to win right now.

Why would anyone do anything except a "flyer" type trade for Watson right now? He's a top flight QB, but he could also be heading off to prison next year.

This is a pretty big deal. It could change the Titans whole offense and the AFC South.

Titans agree to terms to acquire All-Pro WR Julio Jones via trade

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — The Tennessee Titans agreed to terms with the Atlanta Falcons to trade for superstar wide receiver Julio Jones on Sunday.

In exchange for Jones, the Titans will send Atlanta a 2022 second-round draft pick and a 2023 fourth-round draft pick. The Falcons will send along with Jones, a 2023 sixth-round pick to the Titans.

Several Titans players expressed their interest in the All-Pro wideout via social media in attempt to win the Julio Jones sweepstakes after it was made public that Jones requested a trade from the Falcons.

Jones will join an already loaded Titans offense which includes the reigning offensive player of the year and 2,000 plus yard running back Derrick Henry along with ascending star wide receiver AJ Brown.

While Titans fans have a lot to be excited about in gaining a future hall-of-famer who has several great years left in him, he'll come with a steep price tag of $15.3 million.

The Titans will likely need to move some players and money around since they currently have just under $4 million in cap space, but with a player this special it will be well worth it.

Not as expensive as rumored. Good deal for the Titans.

It is easier to root for the Falcons over the Titans due to conference affiliations, but I kind of, sort of root for both due to geographic location. Both teams games on on locally, so I catch a lot of both on TV.

As you would expect, I get bombarded with Titan information. It's actually rather hard to avoid if you watch local news here.

I see no way a team will mortgage their future on a guy who may be sitting in prison soon.

Watson isn't going anywhere for the foreseeable future.

I hope he stays out of the AFCN, because he isn't coming here.

Xavier Howard is a very good player. Let’s hope he goes to Philly or NYG

My interest in Trades in general is on who the Browns might be willing to trade as we try to pair down the roster to just 53.

I have no fear of one guy from outside the conference coming in and slowing us down or improving someone else's roster to the point they will overtake us.

We are headed to the promised land and of course we have to stay relatively healthy as we navigate thru the season. Beyond that I am sorta looking at who we might trade and what we may get in terms of future picks as I don't see us being in a situation where we are making trades to improve I see that part as having been done, so for now I see us trying to deal some of the players that we have that would improve someone else's roster while banking a few picks for future use.

At this point I think this roster is pretty set along with depth. Some talking heads have us letting some pretty good talent go especially at WR. Depending on if we keep 5-6 WR. I believe we will keep 6, I also believe that OBJ and possibly Landry may be playing their last seasons in Cleveland. But will see.

We are in lock step.

That is exactly how I see it.

This roster is a hard roster to make. A number of good players will not make this team.

Some of them we may be able to leverage into future draft picks.

These may not be big moves but we may be able to land a few future mid round picks.

An example might be someone like Billings. He opted out. He could be a starter. At the same time he might get beat out.
If some of these guys like Togiai, Wilson, or McDowell have a huge Camp.

Another could be at linebacker. We signed Malcolm Smith to a one year deal. Walker most likely is a starter. JOK will play. If Mack, Taki and Phillips look great at Camp. Malcolm Smith could be traded. He is still a good player or we would not have brought him back.

So yes to trades that can bring future picks.

We will not go after Xzavier Howard unless we got him in a steal. Even if we traded Greedy and future picks we would have to pay him way more than we can afford. Given the guys we are trying to extend.

IMO, that's a huge win for Cobb. Gets him out of Houston. I'm going to assume GB also came out a winner in terms of the 2 transactions.

I'm not so sure about Green bay coming out the winner here. We all know that they had to make concessions for Rogers to agree to stay and play. While it's certainly conjecture on my part, I'm guessing getting him a WR was a part of those concessions. When a team gets cornered into making a move to get a player, that's certainly not negotiating from a position of strength.

Maybe. I didn't really think of that. I was just considering what a mess Houston is right now and assumed there are deals to be had by dealing with them this off-season.

I simply saw an article where Cobb was saying he was going to be traded right after Rogers agreed to the deal. It was as if He and Rogers had been talking. That's what led to to see it as a strong possibility. I'd like to take credit for thinking of it myself but that isn't the case. wink

I was reading this morning that Carolina is strongly looking at the Watson situation. It’ll be interesting to see if anybody is willing to give up THAT much for such an unknown

Pretty weird.

I always liked Schobert. I will now enjoy Nick Chubb running right past him and David Njoku burning him over the middle.

They have a need and Joe fills that need for them. He is and was for us an OK player.

I thought the Browns made the right move letting him go, time will see if I am right. I agree if your saying he is a middle of the road type player, that should be paid along those same lines. It took Jacksonville one season with Joe to realize they had vastly overpaid.

I'm not so sure about this.

For decades, the Steelers' ability to identify talent to fit their scheme (either in the draft or current NFL players) at the linebacker position has been nearly flawless. Hell, I think they made L.J. Fort a meaningful member of the LB corp.

I think Schobert had a subpar year in JAX but I think his larger sample size when in Cleveland was the determining factor for them. What Joe lacks in sideline-to-sideline speed he makes up with instincts and his cerebral approach to the position.

I don't look at this as a negative for the Steelers. I see it as an upgrade for them, and a negative for us.

So, I'm guessing Week 1 the starting four could be:

T.J. Watt- Devin Bush- Joe Schobert- Melvin Ingram

Kind of meh on Schobert to the Steelers; liked him here but probably overrated him myself. I don't think the Steelers LOSE anything by signing him, and he is probably an improvement. At the same time however, he doesn't scare me one iota.


Nobody cares about your feelings.
